Coffee Scrub

Coffee is the go-to morning beverage for millions of people. Not only can coffee help you start your day, it can also be used at night to tighten your skin and prevent the signs of aging.
Coffee contains antioxidants that slow the signs of skin aging. When used as a scrub in combination with other substances, coffee exfoliates and firms your skin while at the same time working to smooth out and eliminate fat deposits.

In a bowl, combine the following ingredients:

  • ¼ cup of coffee grounds
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (heat this slightly to make it a liquid)

Using your fingers and small circular motions, scrub your face, neck, and chest for 3 minutes. Rinse the mixture off using warm water. For best results, apply this scrub once a week.

Witch Hazel

Witch hazel is a plant that provides many health benefits, not least of which is to help tighten and heal aging and sun-damaged skin. Witch hazel can be purchased online or at most drug stores or health food stores.
Witch hazel is most commonly used as an astringent, where it works to shrink pores and tighten skin. Witch hazel also helps to slow the breakdown of the collagen and elastin within your skin.
At night before bed, or whenever you use an astringent, soak a cotton ball with witch hazel and apply liberally to your face, neck, and chest. Let the witch hazel dry for five minutes. Do not rinse your skin after it has dried.
For added healing benefits, apply another round of witch hazel to the same areas. Witch hazel is gentle enough that it can be used daily in place of an alcohol-based toner.

Yogurt Mask

Yogurt is a crucial part of any healthy diet. In addition to eating it, you can also apply yogurt directly to your skin to smooth and tighten wrinkled areas.
Like most milk products, yogurt contains lactic acid. When applied to your skin, the lactic acid works to shrink pores. This can result in tighter, smoother skin.
To create a skin-tightening yogurt mask, mix 2 drops of lime juice into 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt. Apply the yogurt/lime juice mixture to your face, neck, and chest, and massage into your skin for 10 minutes.
Leave the yogurt mask on your skin for another 5 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. This process can be done twice a week.
